They have finally admitted that they should not be charging VAT on monies for damages. Therefore any motorists who have paid up a Ransomes demand should contact Ransomes to ask for payment of the VAT portion to be refunded. They could also consider informing HMRC that they have been charged VAT when they should not have been.
The address to contact for a refund is:
Mr Nigel Robson
